THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR WEST CENTRAL AND SOUTHWEST
FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

...THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
SUFFICIENT LOW LEVEL MOISTURE COMBINED WITH A FRONTAL TROUGH
SINKING SOUTH THROUGH THE REGION AND THE SEA BREEZE
CIRCULATIONS WILL SUPPORT SCATTERED THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT
TODAY. THE BEST COVERAGE OF STORMS TODAY IS EXPECTED TO BE OVER
INTERIOR LOCATIONS SOUTH OF THE I 4 CORRIDOR AND EAST OF THE
I 75 CORRIDOR DURING THE LATE AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING
HOURS. THUNDERSTORMS THAT DEVELOP TODAY WILL BE CAPABLE OF
PRODUCING STRONG GUSTY WINDS...FREQUENT DEADLY LIGHTNING
STRIKES...HEAVY RAINS...AND SMALL HAIL AS THEY MOVE TO THE SOUTH
AND SOUTHEAST AROUND 10 MPH. REMEMBER IF THUNDER IS HEARD OR
LIGHTNING IS OBSERVED MOVE INDOORS IMMEDIATELY.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.

...THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
ADEQUATE LOW LEVEL MOISTURE COMBINED WITH DAYTIME HEATING AND
THE SEA BREEZE BOUNDARIES WILL SUPPORT SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS
THROUGH THE UPCOMING HOLIDAY WEEKEND...WITH AN EAST TO SOUTHEAST
STEERING FLOW FAVORING HIGHEST COVERAGE OF STORMS ALONG THE
FLORIDA WEST COAST EACH DAY DURING THE LATE AFTERNOON AND EARLY
EVENING HOURS. STORMS THAT DEVELOP WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING
STRONG GUSTY WINDS...FREQUENT LIGHTNING STRIKES...HEAVY
RAINS...AND SMALL HAIL. THUNDERSTORMS CHANCES WILL DECREASE
TUESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY AS DRIER AIR MOVES INTO THE REGION.

...MARINE IMPACTS...
STRONG HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING IN NORTH OF FLORIDA WILL BRING
AN INCREASING EASTERLY WIND FLOW ACROSS THE GULF WATERS DURING
THE UPCOMING WEEKEND AND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK. THESE INCREASING
WINDS WILL CREATE HAZARDOUS BOATING CONDITIONS FOR SMALL CRAFT
OPERATORS...ESPECIALLY DURING THE LATE NIGHT AND EARLY MORNING
HOURS AND MARINERS SHOULD EXERCISE CAUTION IF PLANNING ANY
TRIPS INTO THE GULF DURING THE UPCOMING HOLIDAY WEEKEND.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY.
